How to Make a Mike Wazowski (Monster’s Inc) Costume

Halloween PhotoHalloween Photo with Renee and Jessica

Mike Wazowski CostumeDressing up for halloween is always so much fun! I really didn’t want to spend money on a halloween costume so I decided to work with what I had at home. My brother has a huge green hoodie that he left behind when he moved out so I decided to take it and create a costume out of it! It was a super simple costume but I really liked it because Mike Wazowski from Pixar’s  Monster’s Inc is awesome! All I did was stuff the pillow into the hoodie, paste and eye and mouth on it and I was done! :)

How to Make a Mike Wazowski Costume

– Giant Green Hoodie
– Pillow
– Printed Eye and Mouth
– Tape


1. Print/Cut out the eye and mouth (find the file here)

2. Stuff the pillow into the hoodie and zip it up

3. Tape the eye and mouth onto the hoodie
